Just have to focus on the science. Science reveals answers. Answers build hope.

I will strive to right my wrongs. I will stand strong against the evils that would tempt me and possess others! For this world, now consumed by despair, I will always — always fight back to build hope in a better tomorrow! Doing any less would only feed the agents of our demise.

Hello, I am a straight white cis male. I am trying to be a better ally to the lgbt+ and BIPOC communities as well as for climate.

I am a Christian agnostic, trying to find any meaning in the tradition that I have lived in for my entire life (not sure how much I can find, but still looking).

Espionage and surveillance on those that are supposed to have rights to privacy? Claiming that an organization is a terrorist organization in order to justify breaking laws against them? Sounds familiar!

Hooray! The United States is back to doing the bare minimum in order to fight climate change!

Rush Limbaugh, racist, xenophobic, a$$hole 

@JohnHaley88

On this day I will also stand behind this as well! That though I think little of the man that Rush Limbaugh was, still, god(whatever that means) loved him. Maybe that is a great message to remember on this Ash Wednesday. From dust we come and to dust we will return!

Rush Limbaugh, racist, xenophobic, a$$hole 

I can’t make myself sad for the passing of this fear mongering, xenophobic, homophobic, racist, sexist man. But I do wish well for his family in their time of grief. May the air waves be a better place now!

For those tired of arguing with family who have no idea about the true science that they are mistaken about, these are for you! Enjoy!

something very relevant to white people on the fedi 

"If you follow all the prescriptions of checking your privilege, unpacking your invisible knapsack, centering the marginalized, and excavating your deeply held white supremacist notions, you will absolutely positively have to break up with actual white people.

"You will love many of those white people. You will be related to some of them. You will, one day, be faced with seeing “whiteness” not in ideas but in people."

anticapitalist poetry 

Boss made a dollar,
I made a dime.
That was a poem
From a simpler time.

Now Boss makes a thousand
And gives us a cent
While he's got employees
Who can't pay the rent.

So when Boss makes a million
And the workers make jack
Then that's when we riot
And take our lives back.

Ooooops! Did Reddit prove money is an imaginary abstract, based upon nothing but faith alone?

What if let's say, everyone stopped believing in it. And started viewing their labor as an overall contribution to humanity. And just gave everyone the things they needed?
For free?! 😮

Congratulations, 4 years of hideous to read Marxist theory summarized in 4 poorly structured sentences.

One down, one to go in a month! Then in two weeks after that I will be better protected than if I had done nothing. Will still be masking and distancing! Stay safe everyone!

food allergies, climate change 

It feels like I have the same conversation with people of my parents' generation over and over again.

Them: Why are there so many more food allergies these days?

Me: Actually, I know this one! There are more allergens in the environment than when you were a kid. It's partly linked to climate change, because a lot of the fungi thrive on higher CO2 levels...

Them: It's because kids are too indulged about food these days/houses are too clean these days/kids don't play outside enough so their immune systems are weaker/etc

Bonus point if they end the conversation by saying "You've got to have SOME dirt!" or "You've got to eat a peck of dirt before you die!" as if that had anything to do with it.

Boomers are absolutely wedded to this pet theory, and if you bring up the facts they will absolutely ignore you and carry on.
